Omaha System-based nursing board

Specifically designed for home care nursing

Together with the internationally well-known Dutch home care organization Buurtzorg, we developed a home nursing board in cBoards, based on the widely used Omaha System. By linking the medical history of a patient and the Buurtzorg Onion model to the Omaha System assessment, our Omaha System-based nursing board is highly customized to support care provided by home care nurses. The collaboration features of cBoards ensure the nursing board reaches its full potential in a multidisciplinary care setting.

co-created with buurtzorg

Buurtzorg is a pioneering healthcare organization established 12,5 years ago with a nurse-led model of holistic care that has revolutionized community care in The Netherlands and beyond.

The Omaha System, 
what does it entail?

Problem-oriented approach | Research-based

The Omaha System is a research-based, comprehensive practice and documentation standardized taxonomy (classification) that provides a structured approach to identify, document and communicate patient problems, interventions, and outcomes.

The Omaha System consists of three components


The proven Buurtzorg way of working

IT has always played a crucial role in its home care service delivery

in cboards The Omaha System is combined with…

Medical history

The identification of a patient’s medical history – diseases and medical conditions – is integrated in the signaling of (potential) problem areas.

The Buurtzorg Onion model

The Buurtzorg Onion model is incorporated in the Omaha System based home care nursing board, because that model has a strong focus on the social environment of a patient. The analysis of the social environment is essential, as the informal network of a patient can play an important role in the care to be provided. Assessing the social environment can have a big impact on the decision who provides what care services to the patient. 

Omaha System-based nursing board

With cBoards and its Omaha System-based nursing board, home care nursing reaches its full multidisciplinary cooperation potential

An effective basis for documentation, communication, coordination of care, and outcome measurement, combined with the open ‘privacy by design’ cBoards data sharing and collaboration structure, as well as its concrete coordination and communication features and tools.


Add or remove board elements, so the board fits everyone’s collaboration (registration and data sharing) needs.


All predetermined and selected board elements are shown on the dashboard. E.g. attentions, care moments, history, summary, assessment, care plans, diagnostics, instruments, medication.


Register the medical history and conditions of a patient. Possible related problem areas are automatically identified in the Omaha assessment.


Perform the Omaha assessment on problem areas within four different domains: Physiological, health-related behaviors, psychosocial and environmental domain.


Determine and describe the interventions you are going to make, with regard to the identified problem areas during the assessment. This way the care plan is set up.


Register a summary of your findings as a result of your patient visit, and register the progress made on the interventions described in the care plan.

Buurtzorg, and it’s revolutionary way of delivering home care

Buurtzorg strives to improve or maintain the independence and autonomy of its patients, in a very efficient and effective way. 

The Buurtzorg Onion model assembles the building blocks for independence, based on universal human values:
– People want control over their own lives, as long as possible
– People want to improve their quality of life
– People seek for social interaction
– People want to have ‘warm’ relationships with others

The Buurtzorg home care nurses attune to the patient and its context, taking into account its living environment and the community, its informal network as well as the healthcare professionals already known to the patient. Involving and activating a patient’s formal and informal network is a crucial aspect in the Buurtzorg success.
